Global building technology society ASHRAE is offering a new course to address the vulnerabilities in the design, construction, installation, operation, and maintenance of HVAC systems in universities and office buildings exposed by the pandemic.

The online instructor-led training course, Reopening Universities: Managing HVAC Systems to Mitigate the Spread of SARS-Cov-2, will be offered from 2 to 5 p.m. on March 23. It expounds on Covid-19 resources on reopening universities and office buildings, as compiled by ASHRAE’s Epidemic Task Force.

The course also provides guidance on creating a Building Readiness Plan for heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems for the two building types and offers an explanation of specific mitigation strategies.

Registration for the Reopening Universities: Managing HVAC Systems to Mitigate the Spread of SARS-Cov-2 course is open now, at a price of $299 ($224 for ASHRAE Members). Certificates of completion will be available for download for the successfully completed course.
